A loan of $1,625 helped to pay for his industrial electrical engineering studies.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos lives in Lima in his older sister’s house. He is close to finishing his technical studies in industrial electrical engineering. He has been keeping up with his studies with support from his family and with what he earns at his part time work as a night time security guard at a commercial establishment. Nevertheless, this would not be possible without the support of the Kiva lenders. This is because financial problems have prevented his family from being able to continue helping him pay for this educational cycle.

His goal is to be able to complete his education and to work hard in order to be the best in his profession and to innovate the industry.

Juan Carlos is grateful for the support of the Kiva lenders at this decisive time. It will allow him to successfully complete his studies.

He is convinced that the first step towards developing a better society is access to education. Therefore, he is grateful in the name of all of the students for such commendable work.
